Syllabus:

The Japanese In-Country Summer School is an intensive language and cultural study tour to Japan from early January to early February. The course is offered in conjunction and articulated with the Department of Asian Studies at the University of Adelaide and Ritsumeikan University, where the intensive Japanese language and culture program is undertaken. Ritsumeikan University is one of Japan's leading universities. The course includes intensive Japanese language study, cultural activities and seminars and visits to cultural and historical sites in Kyoto. It will greatly enhance student's linguistic abilities and their understanding of Japanese society and culture. All Japanese language courses will be conducted at the Kinugasa Campus in Kyoto. Language classes are conducted for three hours every weekday morning, providing a thorough introduction to the Japanese language. Although particular emphasis is placed on oral communication skills the program maintains an overall balance between conversation, reading and writing, thus providing a solid foundation for future studies of the Japanese language. For Japan studies, seminars focus on topics such as history, sociology and traditional culture. In addition to having the chance to become more familiar with the finer aspects of Japanese culture in class, students also have the opportunity to take part in various fieldwork activities to reinforce what they have learned in class and become immersed in Japanese culture. After completion, students will be required to submit their academic transcript and graduation certificate from Ritsumeikan University and a 1,500 word reflection paper on their experience (in English). Students wishing to enrol in the Japanese In-Country Summer School must first register with the Global Learning at the University of Adelaide, and also see the staff at the Faculty of Arts office before their departure if they wish to have the course counted towards their major/minor in Japanese or Diploma of Languages (Japanese).
